Welcome to the School of Education blog!
Liverpool Hope University has a long and proud tradition of excellence in Education. This stretches back 175 years to the foundations of the University when, as a teacher education college in 1844, it began what was then the revolutionary function of training elementary school mistresses.
The School of Education continues to build on the work of those educational pioneers and has become a global hub for research, teaching and professional education in the areas of Early Childhood, Education Studies and Teacher Education. We currently offer both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes leading to the award of QTS as well as providing a wide portfolio of postgraduate programmes and a suite of cognate professional development courses. All our programmes reflect our commitment to social justice and belief that education can be transformative both individually and socially.
An overarching goal for the School of Education is to develop a vibrant scholarly community where enquiry is nurtured and celebrated. This blog provides an important space to draw upon, value and connect different funds of knowledge in Teacher Education, Education Studies and Early Childhood. We hope it will be useful for our staff, students and colleagues across our partnership schools.
We look forward to hearing from you and sharing insights in this exciting field of enquiry!
